Marble analysis, 4767
Marble origin: Afyon (Turkey) or Pentelikon (Greece)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 0.58 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -4.40 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 2.65 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: yellow to brown and dark brown
Cathodoluminescence intensity: strong to weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: heterogeneous
The stable isotope data, the MGS, the texture and the cathodomicrofacies support Afyon or Pentelikon as the origin of this marble. However, the cathodoluminescence pattern is closer to that of Afyon marble than to that of the typical Pentelikon marble.
